Nice to meet you!
An event should be an experience and tell a unique story.
My process involves getting to know a couple from the inside out. I want to know your love story, your past, and what you hope for in the future. I want to build and curate a wedding that will showcase your love and bring together all of your friends and family in a celebration that will not be soon forgotten.
I love executing a wide range of events in varying design aesthetics, logistical complexity, and price points. I have managed a spectrum of different styles of events from uptown black-tie affairs to a casual beachside elopements. I love thinking outside of the box to create a one-of-a-kind experience.
I discovered my passion for events while I was in college at James Madison University and worked for the university's special events division. I received my degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management with a concentration in Event Management.
After graduation, I became the Catering, Food and Beverage Manager for a large private club in the Washington, DC area. In this role, I personally managed over 425 events per year including many stunning weddings!
Eventually, I transitioned into a corporate event planning role where I had the opportunity to plan everything from multi-day conferences to charity galas. Today, I am so happy to be back to my true passion, wedding planning.
I look forward to meeting with you and helping you to plan the wedding of your dreams!
